Democratic debate

Democratic presidential debate in Las Vegas
All against the billionaire former NY mayor who defends himself little and badly. Warren shines but it is Sanders who feels much safer today

 

“Only I can beat Donald Trump and I have the experience to be president, I was the mayor of the city with more diversity, entrepreneur, manager, philanthropist”: Michael Bloomberg rejects the attacks of Bernie Sander and Elizabeth Warren during the TV challenge and boasts his credentials for the White House. “With Senator Sanders there is no chance to take back the White House, we will have Trump for another four years,” he says.

Democratic candidates for the White House take off their gloves in the ninth TV challenge in Las Vegas and attack each other on the eve of Saturday’s caucus in Nevada, the third stage of primaries still too crowded. But the big target for all is the latest arrival, the billionaire Michael Bloomberg, who is climbing the polls with a campaign of $ 400 million commercials, the most expensive in American history, undermining both the socialist frontrunner Bernie Sanders and the patrol of the moderates.

Mike Bloomberg has promised to disclose his tax return “in a few weeks”, thus responding to criticisms from his rivals in the TV debate between dem presidential candidates.
The billionaire said it takes “a long time” to fill out his tax return because he makes a lot of money: “I can’t go to Turbotax,” he said.

DIODATO – Fai Rumore [Sanremo 2020]

♫ Here is the winning song of the sanremo festival 2020

 

LYRIC

Sai che cosa penso,
Che non dovrei pensare,
Che se poi penso sono un animale
E se ti penso tu sei un’anima,
Ma forse è questo temporale
Che mi porta da te,
E lo so non dovrei farmi trovare
Senza un ombrello anche se
Ho capito che
Per quanto io fugga
Torno sempre a te
Che fai rumore qui,
E non lo so se mi fa bene,
Se il tuo rumore mi conviene,
Ma fai rumore sì,
Che non lo posso sopportare
Questo silenzio innaturale
Tra me e te.
E me ne vado in giro senza parlare,
Senza un posto a cui arrivare,
Consumo le mie scarpe
E forse le mie scarpe
Sanno bene dove andare,
Che mi ritrovo negli stessi posti,
Proprio quei posti che dovevo evitare,
E faccio finta di non ricordare,
E faccio finta di dimenticare,
Ma capisco che,
Per quanto io fugga,
Torno sempre a te
Che fai rumore qui,
E non lo so se mi fa bene,
Se il tuo rumore mi conviene,
Ma fai rumore sì,
Che non lo posso sopportare
Questo silenzio innaturale tra me e te.
Ma fai rumore sì,
Che non lo posso sopportare
Questo silenzio innaturale,
E non ne voglio fare a meno oramai
Di quel bellissimo rumore che fai.

AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X: the first 64-core desktop CPU

ryzen
It is the first processor for desktop systems with 64 cores inside and represents the fastest currently available on the market. However, it requires applications that are able to take advantage of the high number of cores present to give the best. It is therefore not for everyone, starting from the price: 3,999 dollars!

 

The Ryzen Threadripper family of processors debuted on the market with the first versions in the summer of 2017, representing a radical novelty compared to what AMD previously offered. For the first time, in fact, the American company has been able to offer a product intended specifically for the field of HEDT systems, High-End Desktop, putting itself in direct contrast with the range of Intel solutions of the Core-X series.

 

In the comparison between the two families of Intel and AMD HEDT CPUs, some differences immediately became clear: AMD aimed to offer a higher number of cores, clearly evident with the transition to the number of 32 in the debut of the second generation Ryzen Threadripper CPUs , while Intel has benefited from higher clock rates and superior single-core efficiency. The particular architecture of the first two generations of Ryzen Threadripper processor, borrowed directly from the EPYC proposals for datacenters, also represented a limit with those applications highly dependent on the latency of access to system memory.

 

However, everything has changed with the debut of the third generation of Ryzen Threadripper processors, based on Zen 2 architecture and built with 7 nanometer production technology, which took place last November. AMD presented two models, equipped with 24 and 32 core architecture respectively, anticipating the debut of a third version capable of offering 64 internal cores.

Lyric

Eravamo così belli o almeno ci sembrava
Ed un giorno normale era sempre un giorno speciale
Con la riga di lato e sogni oltre l’aldilà
Facevamo le conte, i pensieri nel dettato
E le notti studiare canto e matematica
Con le spalle scoperte e la musica di mamma e papà
Roma, il sistema solare e il cuore chiuso nella pelle
Cosa, cos’è che ci fa sentire ancora sulle stelle?

Ma è chiaro che siamo noi
Ma è chiaro che siamo
I biscotti inzuppati nel latte
Con i discorsi dopo mezzanotte
E ci ridiamo ancora
E ci piangiamo ancora qua

Mannaggia la Befana
Ma quanto ti ho voluto bene
Te ne voglio sempre di più
Se chiudo gli occhi vorrei crollarti addosso
Roma, le fontane scheggiate, Alberto Sordi nelle tempie
Cosa, cos’è che ci fa sentire polvere di stelle?

Ma è chiaro che siamo noi
Ma è chiaro che siamo
I biscotti inzuppati nel latte
Con i discorsi dopo mezzanotte
E ci ridiamo ancora
E ci piangiamo ancora qua
E non c’è un’altra cosa più vera
E più bella di questa
Fanculo tutto, questi sono i nostri anni
I nostri anni
Questi sono i nostri anni
I nostri anni
Questi sono i nostri anni
I nostri anni
Questi sono i nostri anni
I nostri anni
Questi sono i nostri

I biscotti inzuppati nel latte
Con i discorsi dopo mezzanotte
E ci ridiamo ancora
E ci piangiamo ancora qua
E non c’è un’altra cosa più vera
E più bella di questa
Fanculo tutto, questi sono i nostri anni

I nostri anni
Questi sono i nostri anni
I nostri anni
Questi sono i nostri

DUA LIPA – Don’t Start Now

 

Lyric

Did a full one eighty
Crazy, thinking about the way I was
Did the heartbreak change me?
Maybe, but look at where I ended up

I’m all good already
So moved on it’s scary
I’m not where you left me at all
So if you don’t wanna see me dancing with somebody
If you wanna believe that anything could stop me

Don’t show up
Don’t come out
Don’t start caring about me now
Walk away
You know how
Don’t start caring about me now

Aren’t you the guy who tried to
Hurt me with the word goodbye
Though it took some time to, survive you
I’m better on the other-side

I’m all good already
So moved on it’s scary
I’m not where you left me at all
So if you don’t wanna see me dancing with somebody
If you wanna believe that anything could stop me

Don’t show up
Don’t come out
Don’t start caring about me now
Walk away
You know how
Don’t start caring about me now

Don’t come out
Don’t show now
Don’t start now
Don’t come out
I’m not where you left me at all

So if you don’t wanna see me dancing with somebody
If you wanna believe that anything could stop me

Don’t show up (Don’t show up)
Don’t come out (Don’t come out)
Don’t start caring about me now (About me now)
Walk away (Walk away)
You know how (You know how)
Don’t start caring about me now

(Don’t come out, out, out)
(Don’t show now, walk away, walk away)
So (Don’t come out, out, out)
(Don’t start now, walk away, walk away)

COLDPLAY – ORPHANS

 

LYRIC

Boom boom ka, buba de ka
Boom boom ka, buba de ka
Boom boom ka, buba de ka
Rosaleem of the damascene
Yes, she had eyes like the moon
Would have been on the silver screen
But for the missile monsoon
She went, “Woo woo, woo woo ooh ooh ooh”
Indigo go up to heaven today
“Woo woo, woo woo ooh ooh ooh”
With bombs going boom ba-boom-boom
She say
I want to know when I can go
Back and get drunk with my friends
I want to know when I can go
Back and be young again
Baba would go where the flowers grow
Almond and peach trees in bloom
And he would know just when and what to sow
So golden and opportune
And he went “Woo woo, woo woo ooh ooh ooh”
Tulips the color of honey today
It’s true true, woo woo ooh ooh ooh
With bombs going boom ba-boom-boom
He say
I want to know when I can go
Back and get drunk with my friends
I want to know when I can go
Back and be young again (yeah)
Woo woo, woo woo ooh ooh ooh
Woo woo, woo woo ooh ooh ooh
Cherubim, Seraphim soon
Come sailing us home by the light of the moon
Oh I want to know when I can go
Back and get drunk with my friends
I want to know when I can go
Back and feel home again
Woo woo, woo woo ooh ooh ooh
I guess we’ll be raised on our own then
Woo woo, woo woo ooh ooh ooh
I want to be with you ’til the world ends
I want to be with you ’til the whole world ends
Boom boom ka, buba de ka
Boom boom ka, buba de ka
Boom boom ka, buba de ka
Boom

2019 was the hottest year in the past 200 years.

2019 was the hottest year in the past 200 years. It is no coincidence that Magazine Time voted Greta Thunberg as the person of the year. So among the intentions for the new year there is certainly that of spreading green initiatives. Something is being done but very slowly. In Italy, the government has introduced incentives for the purchase of electric cars. I have lived in Italy for many year and when I was a child I witnessed dozens of snows a year. This year I still don’t see a snowflake. It is hoped that it was only a bad year, although the evidence of climate change, albeit minimal, is certain.

Among the Italian political initiatives there is also that of the recognition of electric kick scooter as vehicles equivalent to bicycles. Electric kick scooters are in fact increasingly used by an increasing number of people.

The Pacience of Pope Francis: slaps a faithful!

pope
During the year-end mass (31 December 2019), Pope Francis’ patience was put to the test. While Bergoglio was walking through the crowd, an oriental lady tugged on the Pope’s hand, more than generally happens when a faithful wants to touch and greet the Pope.

The Pope reacted abruptly, as has never been seen, by slapping the hands of the faithful. However the day after Bergoglio apologized for losing patience in an episode that happened the previous day, not specifying in detail what happened.

An episode that certainly does not overshadow the image of the pope, on the contrary, it even more emphasizes the eccentric character of the pontiff, who has sparked millions of comments on the network and on social media.

The New year in the world

2020

The New Year is celebrated all over the world, or rather all over the world that has the Gregorian calendar, that is mainly the Christian one. For example, in some eastern countries such as China, New Year is celebrated on 25th January. The Jews instead celebrate the New Year generally in September.
The Islamic New Year is celebrated on the first day of the month of Muharram and can correspond to any period of the Gregorian year, because the lunar year used in the Islamic calendar is approximately 11 days shorter than the calendar year of the Gregorian calendar, so that an Islamic date “moves” back, compared to the Gregorian calendar, by about a month every three years.

However, the New Year on the Gregorian calendar is celebrated with fireworks all over the world, although fireworks are a delicate theme every year, because there are always accidents. Due to the time zone, the New Year begins earlier in some countries. The first to celebrate will be the inhabitants of Kiritimati instead the last will be those of the American Samoe Islands.

Using cell phones since the 2000s, I can compare the difference with the present day. At one time during midnight the lines were clogged and it was difficult even to send a simple text message. Today, however, the telephone lines hold up well because everyone constantly uses the internet.

Today is a public holiday, and most countries celebrate the motherhood of Mary, the mother of Jesus. Despite this, one of the things that surprised me is that England is one of the few countries where the football matches takes place in New Year. Infact, The Brighton-Chelsea match was played today.

Year 2020: beginning of the decade ’20!

2WE77ZYR5VEQLOZV4EJI52PH4E

2020 is an important year. Although from a conceptual point of view the decade begins in 2021, formally it starts in a few hours. The 1920s will in fact be represented as the years of the past decades of 1900 because until now the ’10s and the’ 00s had an ambiguous representation. The 20’s are about to begin and we hope they are as wonderfully memorable as the 70s and 80s of the 1900s were.
